My daughters were introduced
to Maine Stars 2 years ago, when their Dover Little Green Cheerleadi ng teams needed a gym to practice in before they headed to Nationals, in Orlando. Lori kindly opened up... her gym and gave them space to practice in. This is when I realized, this is a gym that really cares about kids. Some of the parents, myself included, did not realize how close we actually are to this gym. It takes us about 20 minutes to get there from Dover, NH. Its just as close, or closer than some gyms right here in the Dover area. That experience led to my daughters, (now ages 16 and 13) to begin tumbling classes there, and of course, going the gym and becoming part of 3 teams. This was not our first experience with All-Star Cheering, but it has been completely different in every possible way. They are encouragin g, and caring, they bring out the best in each athlete, they foster an environmen t where kids encourage each other, and really become a family. I have seen so many kids, including my own, get new tumbling skills, and watch the whole gym celebrate it the moment it happens! As a parent, I appreciate how Lori and all the coaches work around school schedules, other team schedules, etc, when the calendars are made. Unlike some other all star cheer gyms, Lori encourages her athletes to participat e in school sports and activities as well. This is not an easy task for her, because it involves working with schools in Maine and New Hampshire, which have totally different vacation days and yet it all works out. We have all met so many wonderful people here, and had a great time at competitio ns. Maine Stars teams have been super successful in the past two season, earning many titles, too many for me to remember them all. All I can say is, the season literally just ended, and both my girls can't wait for it to start again! Thank you Maine Stars for everything you do!!

My daughter has been attending Maine Stars Cheer Gym since she was 3 (just turned 7) and my wife and I couldn't be more happy with it. The coaches range from high school girls who are great with the k...ids and are very knowledgab
le, to adults who have been coaching for over a decade. All the coaches are exceptiona lly great no matter how old your child is. And although each coach has a different approach with the children, they are likable, energetic, excited to be there to help the kids grow, and super dedicated. Even with the amazingly fun atmosphere that is implemente d by Maine Stars Cheering, there is also a sense of self discipline with all of the girls. Not only does my daughter look forward to being there, but she also wants to work hard and gain skills because the coaches believe in her. And last but not least is the team building that is involved with Maine Stars. There isn't 1 athlete that is solely depended on. The kids benefit from being part of a team and playing their part of working together to accomplish their goals. That's what I believe sets this gym apart from any other. The positive reinforcem ent is wonderfull y implemente d so that they are all looked at by the staff, as Stars, because they are.
GO MAINE STARS!!
GO MAINE STARS!!

This was our first year at Maine Stars Cheer Gym and what year it was. My daughter loves cheering again. She is more confident and outgoing. Lori and every single coach at Maine Stars have so much po...sitive energy. They encourage everyone not just a select few. There was not one special team, but five special teams. From the first night we walked through that door, we became family. If you are looking for a positive fun environmen
t for your cheerleade r, Maine Stars is the place to be.

This was our first year at Maine Stars Cheer Gym. We didn't really know what to expect. What we found exceeded our greatest expectatio
ns. My daughter has found her cheer home! She wakes up asking "wha...ts going on at the gym tonight!" The coaching staff is tough, they know what these kids are capable of and have very high expectatio ns! I am sure this is why this year alone they are not only NATIONAL CHAMPIONS they are TWO TIME US FINALS CHAMPIONS! These girls push each other every single day, they root each other on, they lift each other up. The thing that stands out the most to me is that there isn't "one super star team" every single team counts! I know that my daughter has some of the most amazing role models because of Maine Stars! I am so glad that these are the girls she hopes to be like! Thank you Maine Stars for welcoming our family into yours! We are so very lucky to be a part of this amazing gym! We love each and every one of you! ♥
is a very good helping team and commitment to join!
